Anyway, Gnosticism is very interesting, and I discovered it in my alchemical studies and the two have a lot in common. I haven't read everything here on this blog yet, but I can say this; whatever death may hold there needs to be death before death.
In the Gospel of Philip it says:
"Those who say they will die first and then rise are in error. If they do not first receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing."
And this is where alchemy comes in, where one transmute the dead body (stone) into a living.
I just started a forum on alchemy, and so far there is very little there (but it has only been going for a day). I hope those that find alchemy of interest will stop by. And if not... well I will see you all here!
